Happy Saturday! I hope yours is off to a better start than mine! I have had the worst headache for over a week now and finally made it to the doctor yesterday only to be told that it’s a migraine and there’s not really much I can do but wait it out. I thought about skipping a blog post today but decided I owed it to you guys to share this one in case there’s anyone out there looking for a last minute party idea.

These hot sandwiches are so good and so easy! My mom made them about a year ago for my grandparents 50th (!) anniversary party and she’s made it once since then because everyone loved it. Well, months ago I promised my husband that I would make them for the first NFL game of the season so that’s exactly what they did. And we loved them again!

These guys are baked right before serving so the Havarti, which is already ridiculously creamy, gets all melty and delicious. The peach jam and the roast beef are a match made in sweet-and-salty heaven. The flavors all work together somehow and turn into the most delicious sandwich ever! My mom says she’s also done ham, swiss, and strawberry jam sandwiches that turned out wonderful so if you aren’t big on beef, try that.

I know my picture is less than stellar, but they really are great. My husband is already asking when I’m making them again!

Hot Roast Beef Party Sandwiches
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 2 9.25-oz. packages dinner rolls
  • 2/3 cup peach preserves
  • 1/2 cup mustard-mayonnaise
  • 3/4 pound thinly sliced deli roast beef chopped
  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced Havarti cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 325F.
  2. Remove rolls from packages. (Do not separate rolls.) Cut rolls in half horizontally, creating 1 top and 1 bottom per package. Spread preserves on cut sides of top of rolls; sprinkle with pecans. Spread mustard-mayonnaise blend on cut sides of bottom of rolls; top with roast beef and cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, if desired. Cover with top halves of rolls, preserves sides down, and wrap in aluminum foil.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes or until cheese is melted. Slice into individual sandwiches. Serve immediately.
